right to bill karins and the weather channel forecast. what's it looking like right now. >> sandy is an amazing anomaly. this storm this time of year should not be this strong this far north. at this point in the math it should not be ready to take a hook back into the northern mid atlantic states and southern new england. that's all going to happen today. we'll deal with, in some cases, devastating storm surge and the wind damage is going to be incredible with still leaves on the trees in many areas from philadelphia to the d.c. areas. there's the center of the storm. still thunderstorms around the center. it's feasting right now over the warm waters of the gulf stream. it may even intensify a little bit. amazingly the winds went up this morning to 85 miles per hour, now only a little less than 400 miles away from new york city. it will accelerate and move quickly towards the coast. the weather will go downhill in a hurry. look for landfall somewhere near atlantic city to wild booed to cape may, new jersey, as we go about the 8:00 to 10:00 hour on the east coast. that also coinci

gray, nbc news. >>> waiting, indeed. bill karins is tracking sandy as it heads towards the u.s. bill, what's the latest? >> in the last 24 hours, lynn, the forecast for northern new england has improved. this is the forecast from the national hurricane center. paralleling the coast over the next two days and then taking it sunday into monday towards the northern mid-atlantic and the northeast. let me get in a little closer on the cone of uncertainty. the cone goes from providence, new york city, delaware, maryland, virginia and all through the chesapeake area. again, don't focus on the center line, not yet. wait until we get over the weekend, a little closer to see where the direct landfall is going to be. computer models connecticut landfall and as far south as maryland, delaware and maybe even virginia landfall. the cluster in the middle would be somewhere here into the new jersey area. here's how one of our computer sees it. the center line where we're watching the center of the storm and begins to track towards the coast, a landfall in jersey. the bottom line with this storm, if
meteorologist bill karins is tracking sandy for us. he's been doing so all week. bill, what's the latest? >> good morning to you, lynn. the storm is just off the florida coast. tracking all the way up and down the eastern seaboard. so many people on the west coast travel there or have family and friends that could be impacted by this storm. a lot of our favorite vacation spots on the east coast are getting impacted. high winds in florida. it will be a lot worse as we go through the weekend and especially the tail end of the weekend into the northeast. it almost looks like an extra tropical system or a hybrid with tropical conditions to the north sucking in dry air to the south. that's going to be the story with this. new england is not going to be hit with a hurricane. it will be a nor'easter with rain instead of snow. the forecast path takes it parallel to the coast and then inland, somewhere right along the big cities. some of the most highly density populated areas. between washington, d.c. and new york city. we won't focus too much on the center because it will be a broad wind field
. >>> now for a look at your national weather, i turn to bill karins. i say that with no judgment. >> not at all. >> not at all. >> plastic surgeons are cringing. a little botox into the "o" on the side. >> how is the weather, bill? >> it's okay. it's a mild morning out there. no frost on the pumpkin this morning, though. warm pacific air is blowing across the country. at least for now we shut the door on the cold canadian air we got a taste of last week. the big storm system that's kicking up through new england is exiting during the day today. the southern half of the country from arizona and california to florida, everyone is going to see a relatively dry day today. just a few spots of wet weather. as temperatures go, we're in the 50s and 60s up the eastern seaboard, 40s in the great lakes. you need a light jacket this morning. in some cases probably no jacket at all in texas. look at denver, you're even warm at 61 degrees. a few spots of rain. we have a little bit exiting new england. a few showers up here in the northern plains and a larger storm. this one will give us proble
on that incredible story in just a moment. first, let's go up to bill karins for the very latest on this storm. bill, where are we right now? >> we're about 95% done with all the damage that this storm has produced. and, again, the majority of it was last night at about 8:00 p.m. as we had the high tide cycles right along the jersey coast. of course, with those gusty hurricane-force winds that we dealt with all yesterday afternoon and evening. but i still have concerns this morning. we have the next high tide cycle approaching areas that had the devastation last night. this will not be as high. the storm is a little weaker, a little further inland. it will be much higher than normal. we'll have more minor damage occurring at this high tide cycle. the next one in new york city down by battery park is just after 9:00 a.m. this morning. it is not expected to be high enough this time to flood the streets and flood the subways like the one did last night at 8:00. but we still need to watch it. it is still going to be much higher than normal. the one last night was 13 feet. this one should be more like 9

's for sure. >>> now, for a look at the national weather, we turn to meteorologist bill karins. he probably has a conspiracy theory. why would i think that? >> government. not sure which one but it's a government ploy somewhere. keep the kids out of the water. good morning, everyone. we have active weather that's going to happen. thunderstorms pushing through the nashville area and tennessee. a weak storm with cold, chilly rain. this is the beginning of an active weather pattern. if you are in the middle of the country, new thunderstorms popping up here. areas of new mexico. after a quiet first two weeks of october, we are going to have the first weather event starting tomorrow. here is a look at the storms as they push through the area. light rain now. they are racing through central portions of tennessee. the drive on interstate 40 is the worst drive in the country with the storms crossing the interstate as we speak. near springfield, missouri, a lot of lightning strikes. near the springfield area, i'm sure that interstate is not fun, either. isolated strong storms, an area of yellow. it'

at your national weather, once again, bill karins with that forecast. >> a lot of people want to know the timing. like when will the destruction happen. friday and saturday are the prep days. sunday it will go downhill. here's the computer. the brighter colors show the extremely heavy rains. that was where the center of the storm would be. as we go throughout monday midnight into tuesday. so late monday, the rain rates will really intensify in the mid-atlantic. this storm has the system going more or less going towards the jersey shore. then inland the rains pound the chesapeake. that's where the flash flooding would be the highest. at this time, if that landfall was in southern jersey, the winds would be overnight monday into tuesday morning. coastal areas of connecticut and long island. this gives you a gist of the north side of the storm. >> such a huge area. >> you're not going to win. if you're near the storm, you're going to get some. >>> another reason aspirin is good for you and a story that truly goes beyond any family's worst nightmare. your headlines are straight ahead. >>>
they are sandbagging near lake on it as sandy's rath ends inland. nbc meteorologist bill karins has the latest. >> about 95% of the worst is over. that's the amount of damage that's been done. probably about 5% to go. i think the most extreme damage was done last night at that high tide cycle from atlantic city up the jersey shore and into the greater new york city area and out onto long island. the midnight high tide cycle along coastal connecticut. the size of this storm is so immense. it was only a category 1. typically a category 1 does, but not epic damage. because the storm was so i'm meansly large, it was able to transport the water so efficiently. it was just like a big hand in a bathtub, just splashing the water along the beaches. it was forced to go inland. that's what we dealt with. the storm has weakened. it has moved into areas of south central pennsylvania. there's a lot of elements with it still. we still have a couple of high wind warnings along lake ontario and as we go through lake erie, spine of the appalachians and the philadelphia area. we could see minor wind damage. as o
